What if you could learn some of the methods and tools used in team coaching to have a greater impact on your 1-1 coaching relationships? This interactive, fun, and engaging session will provide you with some of the core methods and tools of team coaching and show you how to use them in coaching individuals who wish to engage in a more cohesive way as a part of any team or group.
Our approach to team coaching includes assisting a team in identifying a focus area to work on—a pattern of behavior that is keeping them from working more cohesively together. This focus area helps the team leader and the team members work together to more easily and effectively shift their patterns of behavior. In this session, you will learn a powerful subset of a Corentus Team Tool called Accountability, gaining the ability to make a “Clear Request” and how to avoid “Soft Asks”—a very useful skill for all.
ICF’s definition of Team Coaching is “partnering in a co-creative and reflective process with a team on its dynamics and relationships in a way that inspires them to maximize their abilities and potential in order to reach their common purpose and shared goals.”
Our simplified version is that team coaching is a practitioner “working with a team in real time around real work for real results”.
Team Coaching is one of the fastest growing disciplines in the coaching profession and is becoming increasingly important in organizations, including private corporations, government agencies and non-profits and ICF recently published ICF Team Coaching Competencies.
With these simple practices, you’ll be equipped to have a greater impact on your individual clients, while at the same time developing practical ways to impact the groups or teams they engage in.
Corentus has been coaching teams for 25+ years, in over 30 countries. Corentus has also been training practitioners in team coaching for 20+ years in the Coaching Teams and Groups Course in Georgetown University’s Leadership Coaching Certificate Program, and in their own Team Coaching Training Courses and Programs
Through this session, you will:
- Acquire knowledge of the foundational concepts of team coaching
- Gain a deeper understanding of how to foster greater accountability through the skills of making clear requests and avoiding soft asks
Understand concrete ways to identify patterns of behavior in individuals and teams or groups
- Learn how the practice of “sensing for a focus area” can add data to your team leader observations to aid in an after-action review, or as a follow-up during your coaching session with the leader
The session will be recorded and available to registrants after the session, but you must participate in the session live in order to receive any related Core Competency CCEs (if applicable).
